From the Back Cover
The bestselling project management text for students and professionalsnow updated and expanded
This Eleventh Edition of the bestselling "bible" of project management maintains the streamlined approach of the prior editions and moves the content even closer to PMI's Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). New content has been added to this edition on measuring project management ROI, value to the organization and to customers, and much more. The capstone "super" case on the "Iridium Project" has been maintained, covering all aspects of project management. Increased use of sidebars throughout the book helps further align it with the PMBOK and the Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam.
This new edition features significant expansion, including more than three dozen entirely new sections and updates on process supporting; types of project closure; project sponsorship; and culture, teamwork, and trust. This comprehensive guide to the principles and practices of project management:
- Offers new sections on added value, business intelligence, project governance, and much more
- Provides twenty-five case studies covering a variety of industries, almost all of which are real-world situations drawn from the author's practice
- Includes 400 discussion questions and more than 125 multiple-choice questions
- Serves as an excellent study guide for the PMP Certification Exam

There is so much in this text we were able to use it in three classes. One of my classmates didn't like all the bulleted lists -- there's rarely a two-page span without one -- but I found them useful. Especially when studying, it's nice to have a succinct list.
As heavy as this book is, it's a little daunting when you first pick it up. It looks a little forbidding when you crack it open. But I found the writing very personable, easy to understand, and full of "I never thought of that" moments. Good research book to keep on hand.
As the preface by the author states, many instructors require the content of papers used in the course to be more current limiting the usefulness of the text regardless of the relavance. Unfortunately two of my instructors in the MPMP program required with in 5 years releveance and as the case studies are dated in most instances I was half way through the book to find any that would meet the time requirement. In a first come first pick scholastic environment...ouch.
The text does break down the case studies into a logicall grouping order by Project Management sub categories such as scheduling, risk ,resources etc. this has some use as a student looking for a case study by those categories
In the intent of the author the book does what it is designed to do but for someone who is an acknowleded expert in Project Management field and has numerous other books referenced heavily it would be wonderful if it were brought more up to date.
Dr. Kerzner is a fine writer. The books flows well; it is thorough. That said, I wish my instructor had selected a better textbook. My complaint is Kerzner doesn't follow the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge [PMBOK]. The book is probably fine if you don't plan to sit for the PMP examination.
